    's when using multiple words

    Hi,

    I would like to know if the sentence below is correctly formulated and written. Thank you.

    I'm not sure I placed the " 's " where it should be.


    "Thus my chances of getting to relevant results fast are good as any other scientistís".

    And how do you use the 's when you deal with more than one word anyway? For instance how do you say "the car that belongs to my other cousin"? Is it "my other cousin's car"?

    Thanks so much.

    Re: 's when using multiple words

    Your use of 's is correct in both cases.

    Yes!

    (BTW, what are relevant results? )
